Borrowed Q #157: Jan 6, 2021 was… a “revolution” of what, exactly?

This is just a small question in a fabulous post by the great John Pavlovitz written two days ago. I had to think of what was bugging me (other than everything) about the "Tit Offensive" as some have called it ("Beer Gut Putsch" works, too). But that's what I found disconcerting, because from my understanding, … Continue reading Borrowed Q #157: Jan 6, 2021 was… a “revolution” of what, exactly?

Q#155: Is it time to re-assess teaching kids that they HAVE to share, especially siblings?

Okay, this is gonna require some explanation. And no, I haven't changed my last name to Scrooge for the hell of it. Bah, humbug, 2020! Anyway, I was looking at a lot of posts in Reddit and other places and noticed the surge of posts regarding "sharing" Christmas gifts. More specifically, parents insisting that something … Continue reading Q#155: Is it time to re-assess teaching kids that they HAVE to share, especially siblings?

Blitz Q #154: Know anyone still using up the toilet paper from the first great toilet paper famine of March 2020?

I got a bidet, so this doesn't affect me much. I've got a 12 roll pack that could probably last me a year at this rate. However, I'm seeing there's some notices around the country that have popped up periodically indicating toilet paper is getting sparse in fits and starts. Hmm... So, it got me … Continue reading Blitz Q #154: Know anyone still using up the toilet paper from the first great toilet paper famine of March 2020?

Q #153: What’s your thought about “being the bigger person” in most situations?

We're in the middle of the holiday season and this is when the family drama most often gets going hard. I've also been listening to lots of stories online about tons of issues between friends, co-workers, family members... and--inevitably--someone's being asked to "be the bigger person." I think there are few phrases in the English … Continue reading Q #153: What’s your thought about “being the bigger person” in most situations?

Q #152: Is it better to have fresh vegetables or cooked vegetables… or “who gives a damn, just eat your veggies!”?

I think I've figured out why my plans to get lots of veggies in my system (and curb my cravings for quickie carbs and sugars by trying to eat healthier) have backfired so damn much. I typically start the same ways: go to the store and get those bagged salads to try some different flavors … Continue reading Q #152: Is it better to have fresh vegetables or cooked vegetables… or “who gives a damn, just eat your veggies!”?

Q #151: Why do (most) Republicans love to say, “the Democrats are going to take your guns”?

A few hours after Biden won the election, the kid I babysit sometimes was in my yard playing with the dogs with a friend of his, and somehow just noticed the Biden sticker on the back of my car. He went "eww" and pointed at it, like he was incredulous I voted for him. I … Continue reading Q #151: Why do (most) Republicans love to say, “the Democrats are going to take your guns”?

Absurd Q #150: What % of Christians will vote for Trump because they believe he’s the Antichrist & will ensure Jesus’ return?

DISCLAIMER: It has been forever since I've read Revelations all the way through (trying to get through Proverbs still... again) and some of what I'm remembering may well have to do more with cherry-picked stuff from the pulpit, or Milton, or Dante. I don't know. I'm trying to go with what little I remember. I … Continue reading Absurd Q #150: What % of Christians will vote for Trump because they believe he’s the Antichrist & will ensure Jesus’ return?

Q #149: What might Donald Trump do between Election Day & Inauguration Day?

77 days. 11 weeks. That's how far between Election Day and Inauguration Day. This post is a hypothetical because I've got every finger and toe crossed that Dump loses and Biden will be sworn in at noon on January 20th, 2021. I'm operating under that assumption for the next few hundred words. I'd like to … Continue reading Q #149: What might Donald Trump do between Election Day & Inauguration Day?
